Michael is a thin, average sized 3B who will graduate in 2013. Defensively, Michael has sure hands, efficient footwork, and he makes plays consistently. He plays on the balls of his feet, fields in an athletic position, and his exchange is quick and clean. Michael has a quick arm action and he throws with average arm strength and good accuracy across the diamond. Not throwing against his body will help defensive abilities improve. Offensively, Michael has a tall / open set-up, a short / square stride, and he makes square contact. He swings in good rhythm, he can spray to all fields, and he uses his lower 1/2 well. Hitting can improve with a looser grip, keeping his hands high, and keep his swing level.
